The days are getting cooler, turning darker earlier, and my kids are demanding more substantial meals.
Gone are the days of summer where a simple barbequed fish and some steamed veggies would satisfy their appetites.
It seems as though we’re moving into crock pot territory: home-cooked, hearty meals of meat and potatoes and pasta.
I figured I’d make Mom’s Turkey Meatloaf this evening since my daughter came home sick from school and needed some comfort food to help nourish and mend.
Where as mom would’ve gone for the bowl of hot chicken soup with saltine crackers to feed a soul, I opted for a nice and light ground turkey meatloaf requiring very few ingredients.
Bread crumbs, ground turkey and and egg are all you need to throw together this dish. I added some fresh apple sauce and steamed edamamme on the side to complete the meal.
Douse some ketchup on top of your finished product and you’ve got one tasty dinner.
1 1/2 lbs. of lean ground turkey, uncooked
1/4 cup green pepper, diced
1/4 cup red pepper, diced
3/4 cup of plain or panko breadcrumbs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, with hands mix together the uncooked ground turkey with the peppers and egg.
Add the breadcrumbs and lightly mix throughout.
Place into a greased loaf pan in the oven for 40 minutes or until turkey is cooked completely through (cent of roast should be approximately 160 degrees F).
- Douse top of loaf with ketchup. Enjoy!
